Screening & Live Event

Museum of the Moving Image - Bartos Screening Room
With director Nicole Franklin in person
Part of Changing the Picture, sponsored by Time Warner Inc.
Dir. Nicole Franklin. 2017, 72 mins. Digital projection. With Chicava Honeychild, Fidel Vicioso, Brian Anthony Wilson. She is powerful, Black, and female. But at her firm, Blacks need not apply. The CEO of Sanger International, an IT consulting firm, is the powerful and successful Hillary Kelsey. Kelsey is a Black woman with no Black employees and no one can figure out why—until Darryl Montgomery, her 9:30 a.m. interview, enters the firm. On this day filled with an unbelievably awful morning that reminds Hillary of her “place” in a racially charged society, a pending account that could make or break the future of a company, and a mystery man determined to turn Hillary’s world upside down, the events of the film Title VII illustrate why same-race discrimination can not only ruin a company, but possibly destroy lives.
